    Last year Steve had an exhibit at the Southeast Museum of Photography in Daytona. Is this the same travelling exhibit or include new material?
    Steve does some beautiful work, so its definitely worth seeing.

    No, this exhibition has a few of the same photographs, but this exhibition has new photographs as well.

    Yes, Steve McCurry's work is very beautiful and this exhibition is definitely worth seeing. You can visit www.thehistorycenter.org if you want more information. As the exhibition gets closer, we'll post more information about it.
